We printed these beautiful sea-inspired Save the Date cards for Valery and Chris for their summer wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. They opted for a bright, nautical blue paired with charcoal ink and a great wave illustration. They had the great idea to include an enclosure card to encourage guests to book their rooms early. These cards can be especially helpful for a wedding taking place in a popular location, like Newport in the summer.
Congratulations to Nina and Andrew for their Nantucket wedding this weekend! We really enjoyed working with them to come up with this beautifully soft design. The elegant calligraphy for the names and other lines of text was done by Megan Fahy. We then scanned this and added it to our design. The wave and seagulls were printed in a very pale tint of ink to keep the focus on the soft blue text.
One of our favorite things to print are vintage maps, and this Save the Date for a Long Island wedding is no exception! We printed a lovely soft blue in the background with navy ink on top. The little heart is a cute detail to mark the spot of the event.
Here's a great close up of a save the date we printed recently for a summertime wedding in Rhode Island. We love the little website card with a ship in a bottle image printed in striking blue ink. The save the date features a detailed wave illustration that fits the card perfectly.
Here's a sneak peek of some beautiful sea blue wedding invitations we've been working on! Its always so wonderful to see a stack of brightly colored edge painted cards. We love the simple nautical icon, paired with classic type. Its the perfect touch for a seaside wedding in late summer.
Nothing compares to New England in the summertime! Salty air, swimming in the ocean, boats, etc... It’s my favorite place to be this season and I love when we use this inspiration to design stationery for couples getting married along the coast.
We’re sticking with the seaside stationery theme this month and wanted to share some of our favorite nautical save the date announcements from years past.
It's a gorgeous summer day - perfect for chilled rosé and some seaside coasters!
We are in love with these script wedding invitations for a Cape Cod wedding! Eileen and Mustafa wanted a design that was both elegant and touched on tradition, while using a slightly more modern script font. We added touches of nautical flair, in the form of an anchor and a vintage map of Cape Cod. The whole set was letterpress printed in navy ink on bright white paper, for a beautiful contrast.
We have some cute new greeting cards this summer! These two small notes are both great thank you cards to send to any party host or even as your post baby or bridal shower notes. The bright pink strawberry and blue ship in a bottle are both hand letterpressed onto bright white paper and come with a matching blank envelope. You can pick them up from our online shop here!
We love vintage maps, for their hand drawn detail and classic look, so its no surprise that we're really into these Cape Cod Save the Date cards! The cape is such a beautiful destination for a summertime wedding. These letterpress cards give a nod to the nautical, without going over the top with the theme. The map is printed in a dusty blue, with navy text on top for some interesting layering. A navy heart marks the spot of the nuptials in Harwich, Massachusetts.
We are in love with Save the Dates that double as bookmarks. Not only are they a unique design, but they're useful, too! If you're planning on a more formal invitation, the Save the Date is a great opportunity to have a little fun. Show off your personality with brighter colors, or a fun image that reflects the feeling of the venue.
We love these bookmark Save the Dates for a summertime wedding in Maine. The bright red and navy blue along with the vintage ship illustration ink feel perfectly nautical. The rope knot on the bottom is such a sweet detail, too.
Such a sweet letterpress announcement for a summertime baby! The design features a beautiful script for the newborn's name and a vintage illustration of an ocean wave on the bottom. The set included thank you notes, as well, printed in the same dusty blue.
We're in the midst of working on many letterpress wedding suites right now, as these summer weddings will be here before we know it! We love the combination of a vintage map and classic script type on this nautical save the date. The map is printed in a pale dusty blue and the information in strong navy blue, with a sweet little heart to mark the location of the wedding. It's a simple design, but we think it's perfect for a summer wedding in the Hamptons!
This set of invitations is a customized version of one of our collection designs. We love how it looks in shades of navy and paler blue. This wedding took place on the coast of Maine so the waves, whales and seabirds are perfect illustrations.
We love all the pieces reference each other in terms of color, font and motifs but they equally stand alone as beautiful printed items.
We made the RSVP envelopes even more special by incorporating some sweet little bird illustrations around the address.
Overall, we adore this design: look out for it added to our collection! And don't forget that you can complement your custom printing with items from our retail line. Our wave coasters make perfect favors and the whale or wave gift tags could be used as escort cards!
Remember the beautiful Save the Date we printed that featured a ship in a bottle? Well, we recently finished printing the actual wedding invitation and other items. The bride and groom chose to continue with a nautical theme and selected a few more illustrations for their stationery.
Anyone who is familiar with our products will know that we have a soft spot for that whale illustration. And here, it just adds a touch of whimsy to the wedding invitation. We like the interplay between the border and the rest of the card too.
We love how all the pieces look piled up in the photo above. The nautical knot is another of our favorite motifs.
There's something really wonderful about getting married beside the sea (or a lake!). Perhaps it's the soothing sound of the water or that pleasant breeze that cools down even the warmest weather. Many of our clients want to incorporate maritime imagery into their designs, as well as colors that are reminiscent of the ocean. Stephanie - one of our lovely brides - chose a few different motifs and illustrations for us to include on her invitation, RSVP and information card. We think this stationery looks wonderful: informal yet elegant!
We're always trying to develop stationery that appeals to men (or that will appeal to women who are shopping for gifts for men). Don't guys have to send thank you notes too? We've given everyone we know more stationery than they probably know what to do with, but we think these cards would be nice for all the guys who do not have sets of Sesame Letterpress note cards yet!
